The #100DayProject season is about to begin and this year will be my first attempt since I heard about it. While I’ve been making things throughout my life, sharing is something that I’m still learning to do.
Some questions I have are: what should I work on? And what should I share?
In the past, I would have said write 200 words a day for 100 days. But I’m already doing that for hopefully, beyond a 100-day period. I may miss some days but the point is to try again.
(Since I began on Jan 9, I’ve missed two days but by the end of this month, will have a 30-day streak. Yay!)
So, some ideas I’m toying with:
Make and document one whisky cocktail every day. Starting with the classics like Old Fashioned and Rob Roy, then based on my learnings on different kinds of whiskies move towards crafting other whisky cocktails.
The alternative, is to sketch bottles of whisky with tasting notes. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do but have put off for some time.
Write creative captions for weird things that my Sims do. The problem I foresee with this is addiction because when it comes to The Sims 3, I have relatively low self-control.
Write short pieces of erotica based on curated photos. Erotica is something I’ve been attempting to write since I was still in uni. Perhaps it’s time I commit.
Other things on my mind are 100 botanicals or 100 ideas — for business or stories.
But I remind myself, the point of this 100-day thing is to practice and learn, and in doing so, grow.
So I guess the real question I need to ask myself is, “In what area of my creative life does growth matter most right now?”
Are you planning to do a #100DayProject? If you are, tell me about yours!
